3 ways to be more spiritual in your beauty routine + heal your relationship with yourself

When we talk about conscious beauty our thoughts normally go towards vegan and ethical beauty products or eating mindfully and healthily. Yet, the kind of conscious beauty that I want to focus upon today involves mind, energy and emotions.

Over the last few years the world of beaury has changed with more and more people taking a more conscious approach. Rather than being seduced by the brand + packaging we are looking more closely at the ingredients and we are asking questions about how ethical the brand is.

But, what if we could take this a step further by using our beauty routine as a way to consciously align our mind, energy and emotions to heal our relationship with ourselves? In today’s blog post I’ll share some tips on how you can do exactly that.


DEFINING SPIRITUAL BEAUTY 

Spiritual Beauty involves going within to do the inner work in order to heal your relationship with yourself and step out of the dark into your light. The tools I use include energy healing, spiritual guidance (including mindset, mystical wisdom and ritual) and outer beauty treatments.


SPIRITUAL BEAUTY RITUAL

Decide

Set an intention for your beauty routine. Decide how you want to feel and how you want to show up in your world that day. For example, you may have an important interview and you want to feel confident. Invite the Angels, God or whoever you believe in to support you in aligning with this energy through the power of prayer or setting an intention.

Prayer: “Thank you for blessing my day ahead and everyone that I meet. Thank you for blessing me and filling me with (insert what you want to receive).” For added emphasis and energy alignment choose a crystal that matches the energy of your intention, eg: Green Aventurine for luck or Mangano Calcite for self love.


Affirmations

Have affirmations close by and say these as you are applying your make-up in the mirror. Your affirmations can be a mix of things that you love and honour about yourself, alongside those that align with one specific thing that you are working on manifesting into your life.

Tip: Begin your affirmations with the words “I am“. It is believed that whatever follows the words “I am” are instantly affirmed by God and you will become that. Read more here.


Awareness

As you apply your makeup begin to notice where your thoughts go. Notice whether or not those thoughts are self-affirming or devaluing you. It’s possible that when your attention moves towards a particular part of your face or body you feel a shift in your energy, eg: butterflies or tightness in your tummy.

Is this an indication that you need to love this part of your body more? Are their thoughts and beliefs about this part of your body that devalue you?

Tip: Acknowledge the energy, thought and feeling. Reframe and affirm what you want to think and feel about that part of your body instead. Where possible use the word “I am” and if it’s hard to believe the new affirmation trying saying “I am giving myself permission to let go of the belief that……” and follow this with “I am willing to believe that…..”


ARE YOU READY TO EXPERIENCE SPIRITUAL BEAUTY?

Take what resonates from the practice of Spiritual Beauty and don’t feel the need to do it all at once. Start with one of the actions and focus on it over a sustain period of time. On the other hand you may prefer to take one activity and make it into a weekly ritual. Choose what feels good, aligned and manageable for you.

Be patient with yourself too. Whereas you might be able to change some beliefs that you have about yourself quickly, there may be others that take more time. Often these beliefs and thoughts have been engrained in you over a period of time. Affirmed over and over again through experiences and interactions with others, sometimes since childhood. In some cases you have even inherited these beliefs from your your parents and taken them on as your own. Therefore, the practice of Spiritual Beauty will take practise and consistent effort.

I’d love to hear how you get on so feel free to comment below or message me personally.

With love from me to you xo

Cleansing Toolkit: Sage

Sage and the New Moon

Although, the New Moon is a time for setting new intentions, planning new projects and new beginnings I can definitely say that, in the run-up to this New Moon, I am finding that I have more than my fair share of negative energy to transmute and drive out of my physical, spiritual and emotional body.

From my conversations with other women, it would seem that I am not alone with this, as many of you have been experiencing stress, overwhelm, fatigue and sleepless nights, as the first New Moon of 2018 draws closer. All of this can create a feeling of misalignment and I, for one, try my best not to bring this energy to my altar space when writing or setting my New Moon intentions.

Therefore, in the days leading up to the New Moon or on the evening itself I will clear my own energy using Sage, alongside any other rituals and practices that I am guided to. In doing so, I am putting myself in the position where I am most likely to be infusing my New Moon intentions or wish list with positive energy.


Why Sage?

Sage has long since been my go-to tool for removing unwanted and stale energy that has been building up over time, or simply attached itself to me during the day. It’s also a sacred plant that has been used by many ancient and traditional civilizations who would use Sage in rituals and ceremonies in order to heal and purify energy.

What’s great about Sage is that it can be used to clear energy from yourself and your home, especially if you have moved into a new home and want to give it a deep energetic cleanse. It can also be used to cleanse unwanted energy from objects, such as your crystals or crystal jewellery. Essentially, Sage is the perfect addition to your spiritual beauty toolkit and will support you in nourishing your inner beauty too.


How to use Sage

  1. Hold the Sage stick in your hand and set your intention, eg: To clear away unwanted, negative energy from yourself and your space. Light one end of your Sage stick, allowing it to catch fire and burn for several seconds. Once the flame extinguishes gently blow on the lit end to fan the embers.
  2. Begin by clearing your own auric field. I suggest that you start at the top of your head and go down the front of your body, as if you are cutting through energy cords that have attached themselves to your chakras, and travel down to your feet. Continue by wafting the Sage smoke under your feet, down your arms etc.
  3. Move onto ‘Sage-ing’ your space, beginning at the door and going around the door frame.
  4. Work through the room paying attention to corners and other dark corners which is where energy can get trapped. As you do this visualise or say a mantra that supports you in holding the intention for “clearing out the negative, stale energy and restoring positive balance energy”.
  5. Finally, extinguish the Sage by safely snuffing it out in a fireproof container.

Alternatives to Sage

  • Frankincense: Connects you with Source energy, ease stress and anxiety, protection and cleansing.
